The problem occurring when I tried to install the program on a PC (WinXP SP2), a few seconds after running it Wizard returns the error message: "The wizard was cancelled before the program could be completely installed".

I have found an incorrect point in the log file:
MSI (c) (6C:18) [10:36:57:968]: Doing action: StartUp
Operazione 10.36.57: StartUp.
Inizio operazione 10.36.57: StartUp.
MSI (c) (6C:24) [10:36:58:000]: Invoking remote custom action. DLL: C:\DOCUME~2\egidio\IMPOST~1\Temp\MSI21.tmp, Entrypoint: StartUp
Fine operazione 10.36.58: StartUp. Valore restituito 3.
MSI (c) (6C:18) [10:36:58:281]: Doing action: SetupInterrupted
Operazione 10.36.58: SetupInterrupted.

Informazioni 2898. Tahoma8, Tahoma, 0
Informazioni 2898. TahomaBold10, Tahoma, 0
Operazione 10.36.58: SetupInterrupted. Dialog created

(the error message appeared)

Why setup was cancelled? Please, any ideas..

It looks like to me there is a problem with the DLL custom action.

I would contact support for that product and see if they can point you in the right direction.

First check to see if


exists. Then verify that MSI21.tmp is really a dll. If it is a dll and it does exist, goto that directory in the command prompt and type

dumpbin /exports MSI21.tmp
and verify that "StartUp" is listed exactly, and the name is not mangled at all. If the name is mangled and you have access to the source of the dll prefix the return type with 'extern "C"' to prevent c++ name mangling.
